Hi there!

I could sure use some advice as I don't want to make a big mistake, but could use the opinion of experts.

For many, many years I've had my hair highlighted. I was going to the same hairstylist for 13 years. She was wonderful and knew how to handle my fine hair. I'm a natural blonde so I used the highlights to enhance what I already have. Well, this great hairstylist retired so I went looking for another one who had a lot of experience in dealing with fine hair. I found one who did know how to cut and style my fine hair; however, since having my highlights done by her, it's been terrible. I've paid $125.00 for foil highlights that barely last 1 1/2 months whereas with my old stylist they would last 3-4 months. I can't afford to spend that kind of money and have my hair look good for that little bit of time.

I've been seriously thinking of just coloring my hair myself. It would definitely be cheaper but I'm so afraid of what kind of results I may end up with. Can anyone recommend good quality home coloring products? When I was younger, I used Loreal one time and that worked OK. It's just that nowadays, there's so many new products on the market. It has me so confused. And I'm petrified that home coloring will turn red or brassy even though I know they have toners that will help prevent that. Does anyone use home coloring and if so, which ones and what are the benefits? Even if someone uses haircoloring from like Sally's Beauty Supply, I would be willing to go that route too. I'm just so fed up with paying so much money and not getting my money's worth. Is it still true that highlights are less damaging on your hair than coloring?

Some of the products I've been curious about are Garnier, Nice n Easy, Hydrience, etc. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot, Linda
